Vikings To Start Joe Webb at QB Tonight
A lot of Minnesota Vikings fans spent much of the season yelling from the stands and yelling at their TV's "Where's Joe Webb?" "Why aren't we starting Webb instead of Ponder?" Tonight, in the Wild Card round of the NFL play-offs, those fans are finally getting their wish.
It's become apparent Saturday that Ponder's elbow bursitis didn't improve despite essentially taking the entire practice week off. The Vikings simply can't afford to start a quarterback with an injured throwing arm in sub-freezing weather.
Webb will see his first action of the season tonight. Kick-off is 7pm central time.
